Hot Shop: 30 Minute Make Your Own Pumpkin

September 1 - September 30


Get in the fall spirit by making your own glass pumpkin! This September – November we are adding a pumpkin option to our 30-minute make your own classes. For $80 you will work with one of our talented, experienced artist instructors to craft your very own pumpkin that will serve as a glass keepsake for years to come. Learn the basics of working with molten glass as your instructor guides you through the entire process! All levels welcome.

Time slots are available every day, but Tuesdays, from 10:00 am – 6:00 pm. If you would like to share this experience with others, please book consecutive time slots for each individual. Spectators are always welcome free of charge!

Students must be 13 years of age or older with a signed waiver by a parent or legal guardian.

Please note that due to the nature of hot glass, pieces may not be taken home the day they are made. They must slowly cool first and may be picked up the following day after 3:00 pm. Shipping can be arranged for an additional fee.
